The aim of this study was to explore the difficulties that students have experienced so far, their sources of support, but also the barriers that they have for seeking professional psychological help, and detect possible role of perfectionist self- presentation in explaining the difficulties associated with seeking professional help. 467 students from various scientific fields participated in the on - line survey. Participants filled in a demographic questionnaire, Almost Perfect Scale – Revised, Perfectionistic Self – Presentation Scale and modified version of Barriers to Help – Seeking Scale. Students have so far met with an average of 3.2 groups of varying difficulty. The most common difficulties are emotional disturbances, and difficulty in dealing with stress. For support they turn to unprofessional sources, such as friends and family. Students do not see their problems as those that would have needed professional help and prefer other types of support (eg. family). Also, Nondisplay of imperfections and Nondislocure of imperfections explain 39.3% of the variance of barriers in help – seeking behaviour.
